Apologies in advance if this is a really obvious question, I have spent a couple of days looking through the forums for a similar question but have had no luck.
I have recently installed a LITEON 1633S DVD drive. It reads previously written CDs and DVDs but will not recognise any of the blank media I have. When I insert a disk Windows Explorer says “E:\ Is not accessible. Incorrect Function”. I have tried reading blank discs through Nero 5 but it says “access failure”. The media I have tried is Philips CD-R80 52x, Maxell CD-R80 XL 48x and Datawrite 4.7GB 8x DVD-R (yellow).
I have upgraded the firmware to BS0S. I have tried to upgrade to BS41 but the upgrade process fails and advises me to contact the vendor.
I am a complete novice at this but I was wondering if anyone could advise me what to try next. Do I have to get new blank discs??? Download some other CD/DVD burning software??? Help!
I have attached a Nero Info report on the drive, I cannot provide media reports as I can’t see the disks!
I am running Windows XP Home Edition SP2.
Any advice at all would be appreciated, and again - if this is a really obvious question I am sorry to waste your time. If there’s any other info I can provide then please let me know
